Learn more about this holiday with these resources!

Today is Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead! This Latin American holiday has roots in both Aztec tradition and Catholic observance of All Saints Day (November 1) and All Souls Day (November 2). Dia de los Muertos acknowledges death as a part of the cycle of life and features many varied representations of calacas (skeletons) and calaveras (skulls). Loved ones who have passed are celebrated with objects and activities they enjoyed in life, such as food, drink, and music
